Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Nice Aud From the Dead Heads for Obama show at the Warfield

First off, if you're opposed to the political reason behind the show, skip the intro.

This show has some real highlights that deserve a listen. The acoustic "Deal" is so very nice with a real bluesy feely to it, not just a carbon copy of how Jerry did it. Great pedal steel work (the pedal also makes the "Ripple" very, very sweet). The Sugaree in the second set is absolutely large. Great vocals and even better jams. Jackie Green is one of those freaks who can play fantastic leads AND has an amazing voice. Hate those people. And the Iko? My, whose voice is that? Yep, Mickey takes his turn at the mic and doesn't do too bad (sorry to say it, but much less painful than Phil singing Eyes). If you didn't catch the web cast, here's a great chance to hear what went on. Plus the quality of this Aud is pretty damn good.

If you listen real close you can hear that chick in the front row saying "ummmm.....dude....like, did you see my keys? What? No, I didn't bogart that joint, it was the drooling guy before me. I think he has herpes"

I'm gonna have to give this a listen, my connection to the replay was awful and out of sync, giving the affair a very "train wrecky" quality. For those that haven't bothered to see for themselves exactly who Jackie Green is, they need to check out this kid...absoulute talent. There's a couple of tunes archived at Iclips from the PAF Echo Project show in Atlanta last fall that'll give you some idea. I (paid for) and DL'd the audio at PhilZone....nice crispy board...including Jackie doing Night they Drove Old Dixie, Loan Me A Dime, Midnight Rider and a rockin' New Speedway. His stuff is worth the price of admission, even if you have a particular distaste for Phil's vocals.

I had the same disconnect between the video and sound at first, but I didn't run into the same issue when I accessed one of the re-broadcasts yesterday. Keep an eye on iClips for the next one. As discussed yesterday this would make an excellent DVD to sell for charity. I'd buy one.

Which charity would that be? The "High Times" Legal Fund?

Well, that front row chick will need assistance making bail.

Golden Smoggers For Obama

On Monday night Phil Lesh, Bob Weir and Mickey Hart reunited for a performance in support of Barack Obama at their Deadheads For Obama concert in San Francisco. Two nights earlier in Minneapolis, Wilco's Jeff Tweedy returned to the stage with the Golden Smog collective to endorse the Democratic presidential candidate. The Golden Smog line-up for the show at the Target Center also included The Jayhawks' Gary Louris and Marc Perlman, Dan Murphy (Soul Asylum) and Kraig Johnson (Run Westy Run) along with Greg Wieczorek. The Wilco frontman has been an active Obama enthusiast and in December performed at a Jeff Tweedy and the Cool Kids benefit in Chicago.
